P A S S L E T T E R
Impact tests were conducted on February 28, 2014 on your 4’ x 6’ x 79” panelized 3/16” steel above ground shelter with 1/4” plate steel doors. All tests were conducted for resistance to the Protocol 4, Tornado and tests prove your shelter to meet debris impact guidelines of the FEMA 320/361 and ICC-500. All tests were compliant with FEMA 320/361 (2008) and ICC-500 (2008).
Congratulations on your shelter door passing the FEMA 320 & ICC-500 tests. The NWI DIF at Texas Tech University applauds your company’s efforts in providing a safe product for the consumer.
